The RGI neck was on a Squier body until I could afford the Fender. And T-60s can sometimes be found with messed up necks somewhat inexpensively (at least in the states).

haha I could never go for a T-60 for the weight but they're pricey here.

I get that if it makes an amazing guitar in the end for the money the relative cost of the neck and the rest doesn't matter at all. But it still feels odd to me. :idk:

For anyone that wants to know......this is the guitar that Gibson wouldn't build me, no matter how much $ I offered them...SS frets, ebony board, gold MOP inlays, PRS McCarty pickups, etc.


Little more info?

Pretty big neck.....buddy has an R7 and this one is comparable if not a bit bigger.

Solid guitar.

At home, I mostly practice on an Ibanez arch top (AFC95).

I love the T-60 and can handle the weight. The necks are super thin C shape.....which I couldn't live with.

T-40 was the bass that caused me to strain muscles in my neck/shoulder after a 2hr practice. Ended up having to get a 4" wide flexy strap to even use it again.
I've had other tanky basses but damn that thing was a straight up boat anchor.

I think I finally figured out the resize thing?

The top and neck are NOrth Indian Rosewood (Dalbergia sissoo), back is Mahogany, fretboard is Buttonwood (Conocarpus Erectus). Hipshot locking tuners, Harmonic Design Z-90 pickups, Faber Wraparound.
